GFerris

Mr. Gregg Ferris

Mr. Gregg Ferris will present on Normandy, a region of northern France. Normandy is seen by many as D-Day landings of 1944, but for today's visitor, there is a wealth of activities and sights that are often overlooked - Mont St-Michel, the medieval city of Rouen and the striking modernism of the port city Le Havre. A review of some of these is the focus of the presentation, with, of course, a portion on the events of June 6, 1944.
